DIVERCITIES final conference

The EU-funded DIVERCITIES project will be hosting its final conference from 8 to 10 February 2017 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

8 February 2017 - 10 February 2017
Rotterdam, Netherlands

The final conference, titled ‘Governing Urban Diversity’, will present detailed findings from the study and how they relate to existing knowledge and practice. The programme will comprise a range of formal scientific presentations through to interactive workshops led by our researchers. It is designed to create a dialogue between academic researchers, policymakers and practitioners and to act as a platform for the dissemination of new findings and concepts on the theme of diversity in contemporary European cities.

It will consider how urban diversity can positively affect social cohesion, social mobility and economic performance in cities and how the right balance of governance arrangements can be used to tap the full potential of diversity’s substantial assets for specific urban groups, for areas within cities, and for cities and metropolitan areas as a whole.
